Dorchester County, which is physically shaped like a heart, is known as the Heart of Chesapeake Country. Rich in Chesapeake Bay history, folklore and tradition, Dorchester offers unsurpassed opportunities to experience a most beautiful and unique part of Maryland. With its pristine rivers, marshlands, working boats, quaint waterfront towns and villages among fertile farm fields?much still exists of the authentic Eastern Shore landscape and traditional way of life along the Chesapeake.
Dorchester County is changing. The County is growing with the revitalization of the Cambridge Downtown Area, the addition of the impressive new Hyatt Resort, planned residential projects, and a "can do" philosophy at the local and county government levels.
